Abide Within Peaceful Beauty …
We live in a world of war and hate,
where there is little regard for others
or for such things as respect and courtesy,
kindness and compassion, love and peace.
How absurd it must sound to those who destroy
when one says to love all living things,
to walk in the depths of nature and understand
what harmony and balance is,
to hold a child and sing lullabies,
to feel the satisfaction of watching gardens grow,
to hear the birds sing their joy,
to watch the sun rise with hopes for peace
and to watch the sunset with thanks for a good day.
Let us gather in spirit and abide within peaceful beauty,
in a world where only a few of the multitude go,
it is a world within the hearts and souls
of those who desire peace and love for all,
who reach out to others with words of inspiration
and hope for a better world.
Let us fight for not power and greed,
but for the glory of love and peace,
fight not with the sword, but with words from our pens,
and a sharing of thoughts,
let us make a better place for our children
and generations to come,
so they may know the way to walk in peace and harmony,
and to know love for all living things.

I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles forThe Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles.
Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader.
I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.
